Following the completion of the Colusa Basin Watershed Assessment, a Streambank Analysis study was completed on 36 foothill streams in the watershed. These streams were mapped for erosion potential, riparian habitat quality and invasive species infestation. Next, 24 critical management reaches were selected that showed potential for restoration projects.
The purpose of the Streambank Analysis study is to fill in some of the data gaps from the Watershed Assessment by defining areas along streams in the Colusa Basin Watershed that would benefit most from restoration projects. These projects will ultimately improve the overall health of the Watershed and quality of water flowing into the Bay Delta from Colusa County streams.
